Lance Armstrong takes part in his first cycling event since his decision not to fight USADA doping charges.

Lance Armstrong made his first public appearance Saturday (August 25) since his decision not to fight doping charges brought by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency.

Armstrong was in the town of Aspen, Colorado to participate in the Power of Four bike race, a 36-mile ride through the difficult terrain surrounding the famous ski town.

Armstrong owns a home in Aspen and has been known to take part in small Colorado cycling events over the years. The 40-year-old appeared unbothered by the controversy surrounding him and even stopped to talk to fans after the race.
